    One thought on “Wildflower”

    1. Drew Barry has infectious enthusiasm Her adorableness and zest for life have made her an appealing actress and an inviting storyteller.Wildflower is a collection of stories from Drew s life There are a few chapters about Drew s childhood, but the book isn t in chronological order The stories jump around and are randomly arranged, which was a bit confusing, but it also fits with Drew s free spirited style.My favorite stories were about Drew s travels around the world, and some behind the scenes a [...]

    2. Such a down to earth book from a former wild childI really liked the tone she set from the very start of the book Memoir seemed heavy to me and I wanted this to be light This is a book you can dip into or listen to whenever you like Very true Her bookseamlessly wove back and forth in time as she connects her rocky childhood to her unstable teens to her free young adult years until finally she reaches her solid and dependable adulthood Much of her crazy behavior was completely explained and I m n [...]

    3. It is hard to say anything about Wildflower without comparing it to Goldie Hawn s A Lotus Grows in the Mud because these two are very similar works from women who have in common with each other than they may realize.Both of these women decided to tell their story through mini stories, through people they have met, through incidents in their lives, small and big, instead of writing an memoir with strict rules and demands It worked extremely well with ALGinM but made Wildflower look like a cheap [...]

    4. This autobiography both gave me what I was hoping for, but it also disappointed me in some parts I was interested to read this because I admire Drew Barry and think she must have had quite an extraordinary life so far Also, I had to get it because of that stunning cover let s be honest This book was a mix of very different chapters They differ in length, content, honesty, and chronology I didn t really mind because it kept the book fresh in a way, but I did feel like there was an inconsistency i [...]

    5. melissa413readsalot.cI have always loved Drew Barry so I was excited to read this new book Drew says in the preface that she didn t write the book in any particular format, it s not a sweeping life story but an elaboration on times in her life as she remembered them I thought the way it was written, with the back and forth from different years of Drew s life was awesome In the beginning chapter of the book, Drew talks about having an avocado tree in their tiny backyard and a cascading bougainvil [...]

    6. Ok, I honestly picked this up because of the photogenic cover I m not really huge on autobiographies or lives of celebrities, but Drew Barry seems cool I mean, I like some of her movies Why not check this outThis book was of a collection of individual short stories that skipped around Drew s life instead of some grand life story, which I loved You can totally tell she wrote it and there s a sense of her free spirit in the organization I liked hearing her own reflections of a lot of events seen [...]

    7. I have much respect for Drew Barry the actress, producer, entrepeneur, humanitarian, etc Not only did she co star in one of the first movies I lined up for and loved at the movie theater of course, E.T , but also produced and cameo d in one of my favorite movies ever Donnie Darko Though I knew she had a rough time growing up I haven t read her first book of her childhood travails , I was glad to hear she was happy and relishing her new role as the perfect mom to her two daughters.Something about [...]

    8. It s not the greatest writing you ll ever encounterbut Drew Barry has been my spirit animal since I was 5, so

    9. Drew Barry is just so lovely and charming I have always been a huge fan of her movies, and now I just want to go marathon every movie she s ever done This is a light hearted memoir about moments in her life that stand out to her, or changed her in some sort of way Through all of the experiences she shares, she doesn t take anything too seriously and this book just comes across as being genuine.

    10. As I ve stated several times before, there is always an intimacy with listening to memoirs, read by the author, on audiobook Sometimes they can be heartbreaking and uplifting, almost as if you are having a personal conversation with the writer Unfortunately, for me, Wildflower fell just short of this.While filled with funny, touching, heartwarming, and heartbreaking stories, Ms Barry s performance was just that A performance I never felt as if she were telling me the stories she wrote down but [...]

    11. I ve always liked Drew Barry and thought she was a quirky person I m glad I got to listen to this book with Drew reading it I learned so much about her and the struggles she went through as a child actor, becoming an emancipated adult at the age of 14 and not knowing how to do anything including laundry and now as a Mom She is a beautiful soul and I like her even knowing what kind of person she is, is the person I thought she might be I think she would be a lot of fun to hang out with and swap [...]

    12. Some chapters I liked better than others but one thing remains true, I have will always be a fan of Drew Barry.

    13. Okay, so I love Drew and I expected that she would be charming and sweet in this book and she is, but it is a difficult read in places Some of the stories are actually kind of dull and while there is a thread running through this book emotionally abused and neglected girl works harder than anyone else and is insecure and wants to be loved her editor should have helped her sort some of these out Drew is the ultimate success story, and she has a tale to tell, about the difficulty of shaking off i [...]

    14. I ve enjoyed many of Drew Barry s films throughout the years I even decided that she would be the one to portray me in a movie about my life When I saw she had a book out, I was definitely interested in reading it, so I did what I do with most celebrity memoirs I listened to the audio version.Drew is a delight to listen to from beginning to end Her voice is friendly and easygoing She s able to laugh at herself and make her listeners feel like they re in on the joke Her stories range from childho [...]

    15. This is not really a autobiography or a memoir but a set of short stories of memorable moments in Drew Barry s life Some are interesting and some I ve heard than once I was actually watching David Letterman on the night she climbed on his neck and showed her breasts off to him as a birthday present You feel sorry for her and her lost childhood You applaud Steven Spielberg for stepping in and providing a father figure You admire her apparent lack of bitterness towards her parents although it cre [...]

    16. Beautiful child star who shinesI choose this rating not only because I knew any Drew wrote would be awesome But I awestruck on how she made it out of the Barry family, that had such tragedies,t to become this awesome,wonderful,soulful woman This book brought me closer to understanding who she is and how she became a great mother, wife, actress,director, writer and own her own successful production company A MUST READ, NAMASTE to this wonderful woman who tells her story with respect to her family [...]

    17. I still like Drew but this was so boring bad The chapters were not done chronologically which really annoyed me Her chapters dealt with different topics So she kept jumping back and forward in time and I had no idea which Drew we were dealing with There was innocent child Drew, working child Drew, messy teenage Drew, wild child Drew, sensible Drew, working Drew, single Drew, Mommy Drew and that I can t remember She would tell a story always about the most random things and I would have no idea [...]

    18. I listened to this on audio and Drew narrates it herself which makes the story as cute and bubbly as she is A really fun collection of stories about her adventures as a child actor, a business partner, a friend, a mom Big gushes about her love for Spielberg, Adam Sandler, Her business partners, her daughters and her husband and in lawsd her love for flowers

    19. Let us all be like them and defy tradition, and yet create our own traditions at the same time Let us all be wildflowers Celebrity memoirs have always fascinated me, because it s a chance for stars to tell their own side of the story without any interference from the press or paparazzi They have control over what s being shared and what they prefer to keep private Drew Barry s memoir is no exception.To be honest, I haven t seen many of Drew Barry s films I refuse to see E.T because E.T creeps th [...]

    20. I have always loved Drew and getting to know her on a personal level was so fun I loved her childhood stories i think my favorite is that she moved out when she was 14 and got an apartment but didnt know how to do laundry I really liked the book and all the stories she decided to share but i do wish that the book was chronological I found myself asking when did this happen she talked of her kids and then past boyfriends, first movies and i would have preferred a uniform setup of the book but [...]

    21. Drew is such an inspiration I have grown up with her and loved her my entire life A lot of people will be disappointed that this is not some kind of tell all, but that s exactly why I love it Each short chapter is a love letter, and Drew and the word love go hand in hand There s no dirt in here, only love I can relate to her so easily the chapter about her dogs had me bawling You can tell the book was written BY her unlike the last one it s totally in her voice That Sherman Oaks valley girl voic [...]

    22. This was a pretty decent read It jumped around a bit which confused me a lot and I found myself spacing out from time to time I loved her stories of motherhood and working with Adam Sandler the most.

    23. I ve always liked Drew Barry, even though at times she was a bit crazy So when I saw this book at my library s site I quickly requested it I really liked that Drew narrated the book herself, it made for a interesting read There were times you could tell that she was reliving what she wrote, often sort of laughing as she spoke or seemed so ashamed Drew didn t make excuses for her actions, instead she owned up to them and even said at times she wasn t sure how she is going to explain them to her [...]

    24. Wildflower was truly inspirational I have long admired Drew as an actress, especially her aptitude for comedy, but through her writing I learned what a beautiful person she really is Her optimism and perseverance have carried her through some tough life circumstances that would have crippled many others She has turned her life around several times, and come out stronger on the other side, always striving to be better She has accomplished so much, and yet is so humble I would recommend this book [...]

    25. I have loved Drew Barry ever since we were both seven and I saw her in ET She is one of those celebrities I feel strangely like I kind of know, because we have grown together, I watched her go through her turbulent teen years and saw her emerge stronger This book isn t as linear as Little Girl Lost but it s great to see the changes between there and now Drew sounds settled and happy This is an easy book to read, as it feels like Drew is sitting you down for a long conversation over coffee, tackl [...]

    26. This book is for true Drew fans only Especially those of us that grew up in the 80 s Each chapter is a love letter and felt genuine although I would ve liked less profanity matter of taste It made me smile and laugh alot but the chapters about her dogs and saying goodbye to her Dad at Joshua Tree brought me to tears She s lived an interesting life to say the least The flow was a bit disjointed but I listened to this on Audible and Drew s performance is SUPERB yes she narrates.

    27. I already thought Drew Berry was a adorable and admirable woman and this book only made my respect and love for her grow like the beautiful and crazy wildflower she is It was wonderful hearing about her life in her own words and voice since I listened to the audiobook She is a klutz, a workaholic, a rebel and often times a complete mess, but she is also fierce, a nurturing mother and amazing feminist Thank you Drew for all you do and being such an amazing role model to girls and women everywher [...]

    28. I, like many other people, know Drew Barry from her many films and think of her as an adorable, innocent and playful person with a big heart and smile This collection of essays really hit that image home making Wildflower such a fun little read I learned a lot about Barry, her thought process, and her motivations behind making certain films which was really fun to read about She talks about her childhood and her family and shares personal stories and anecdotes that are totally relatable and hila [...]
